Take part in a worthy cause on Saturday, November 11, 2023

Feed Nicaragua is a mission project that provides food for hungry children by packing meals here in the U.S. and delivering them to our partners in Nicaragua. Each meal is a precise mixture of dried chicken, dried vegetables, rice, and soy, can be prepared using only boiling water, and contains a full day’s nutrients for the kids served. Each meal costs 35 cents and is probably the only hot meal most of the children will receive on a given day.
